The Expansion SAE is expected to evangelize Informatica by generating additional revenue and business from existing customers to fuel our growth by strategically right sizing their existing purchases to meet their needs and expanding the departmental use case to an enterprise use case. This role nurtures and owns the expansion relationship within assigned accounts/territory and maximizes Informatica’s footprint within them for CFCN products.  Incremental Sales revenue will be driven by customers’ current consumption of CFCN products driven by the present adoption and their future expansion needs.

Nothing is more paramount to us in Informatica than customer success. In this role, the Expansion SAE won’t simply sell products.

Prior enterprise sales experience within the SaaS ecosystem is a must-have experience. This is mainly a remote sale expand selling position where minimum travel to the customer’s location is expected based on customer needs. Travel is up to and may not exceed 10 to 20%, based on the needs of the business. 

This role will report to the Chief Customer Officer organization through subscription renewals and expansion leadership.
